I knew that this was going to happen; I merely never thought that it’d be him leading the way. I’ll summarize the piece for you: Republicans Bad, Democrats Stupid, Republicans REALLY Bad, Democrats REALLY Stupid, and Democrats need to listen to Frank Rich and start branding Republicans as (as Rick Richman of Commentary himself summarized Frank Rich’s ‘argument’) ‘Worse than Bush.’ Don’t get me wrong: Rich still hates and fears Bush with the power of five hundred burning suns. It’s just that now he hates and fears Congressional Republicans with the power of a thousand burning suns, and one must get one’s priorities in order.
As I’ve mentioned earlier, this is a standard Democratic tactic; use the Republican who is no longer in power as a club with which to attack the Republicans who are in power. Except that the Republicans are, technically speaking, actually not in power.
